Papamoa Plaza sits right in the heart of this beachside suburb and is undergoing a multi-million dollar redevelopment as the community surrounding it continues to grow.
The original mall is anchored by New Zealand’s retailing giant the Warehouse where you can buy almost any kind of product under one roof including clothes, toys, furniture, electronics, homeware, garden supplies and more.
Countdown supermarket is the other big name you’ll find here, along with a range of familiar eateries such as McDonalds, Sushi Time, Pizza Hut, Robert Harris café, fish and chips and Indian cuisine. Enjoy a cold drink and live music at the Rose and Thistle Tavern also.
Browse the best-sellers list at Paper Plus books and stationery store or check out the eye-catching range of sterling silver jewellery at Silver Surfer. Experienced body pierces are on hand and there’s a wide range of body jewellery and accessories to choose from.
Get a new hair cut or colour at one of Papamoa Plaza’s hair salons or treat yourself to a relaxing manicure or pedicure at Hollywood Nails.
If you feel like doing some exercise, Ocean Blue runs a fully-equipped health and fitness club on site. But if you’d rather wear out your credit card instead, head straight for Papamoa Plaza’s fashion shops. You’ll find gorgeous feminine and floaty outfits at Alice & Co, or leading street and surfwear labels at Momentum.
This mall also has a pharmacy, post shop, discount store, real estate agent, Kiwibank branch, computer store and DVDs for hire on site.
Papamoa Plaza has hundreds of free car parks and Tauranga’s Bay Hopper bus service stops right outside the door.
This mall is open seven days a week from 9am till 6pm, although the Warehouse, Countdown, McDonalds and Pizza Hut do operate for extended hours beyond this.
Papamoa Plaza is a hub for community events and you’ll often see local school or charitable groups running fun activities here. Watch out for classic Kiwi events such as the annual Santa Parade, Polar Plunge and Pedal Papamoa at different times throughout the year.
